Regardless of whether you watch Scandal or not, everyone needs to watch this and see Lisa Kudrow fucking nail her scene exploiting misogyny and sexism.
SHE’S SUCH A BAD ASS I CANNOT UHGH
1. Contrary to popular belief, waking up early isn’t going to drastically alter your life or effect how you’re feeling. So sleep till noon and relish in the way laying in bed all day makes you feel a little more human.
2. Drinking your coffee ‘black’ doesn’t make you cooler or more sophisticated than the rest of us who load in milk and sugar.
3. Being unimpressed by everything makes you look like a twat. Get excited, be overly passionate about something. Enthusiasm is fun.
4. Hating yourself isn’t romantic.
5. Eat whatever you want. your friend’s a vegan? Awesome. Listen to her talk about how great she feels because of it while you tuck in to some chocolate cake. Tell her you feel just as great.

Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.How can you help?Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.
This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:Gallon size Ziplock bagsitems to go in the bags, such as:chap stickpackages of tissuestoothbrush and toothpastecombsoaptrail mixgranola barscrackerspack of gumband aidsmouthwashcoins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)hand wipesyou could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift cardAssemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

This is great. I was actually wondering what I could do to help today! :)
It’s finals week, so I’m going to temporarily turn off anonymous asks. In the meanwhile, I’ll still answer the remaining questions in my inbox when I can. I hope you all are working hard to ace your exams! I have a D grade to pull up, so I need to concentrate. D:
P.S. Many of my posts are queued, so my blog will post them automatically. Meaning, while my blog is active, I’m most likely offline.
I have 16 questions before yours, so I didn’t get to it yet… but since you made an effort to ask me again, I’ll reply to you right now. :)
There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. It does not make you stupid or inadequate. In fact, it shows strength.It shows that you’re not afraid to admit what you don’t know, and it shows your willingness to learn.
Don’t be embarrassed. I’m sure your friends have struggled on a subject before and wished they had tutoring available. If you’re afraid of them judging you, then you can let them know ahead of time that you’re going to seek help in class so there won’t be any surprises. You can also ask them to join you if they’re having trouble with the class as well. If they’re not understanding, then you should consider getting new friends or better support.
You can approach the tutor and let him know what you need help with. You two can stay after school or come in during lunch to work on the problems together.
You should learn to ask for help when you need it. That’s the advice I’ve been reminding myself often these past years. When you get older, you’ll realize how important it is to put your pride aside and be willing to seek help and accept it. Most people will gladly offer a hand. You just need to ask. :)
